    simple, stylish shadows.[Flash][Shadows]

    hi guys, a few of you have been asking how i make my shadows ~ its really simple.


    step one:

    draw a Circle dont worry about the fill just yet


    step two:
    delete the outline of the circle and change the fill to radial


    step three:

    on the color tab change both of the gradient fills to #00000


    step four:
    change the alpha of the left gradient color to 50% and the right to 0%


    you should now have a circle that looks like this:


    step five:

    shrink it down to an oval shape


    step six: convert it to a symbol with an apropriate name (such as green_stick_shdow)


    finally place the shadows on the bottem layer (unless there is a background) play around with the positioning of the shadows and remember these factors ~ direction of light and distance from floor.




    for use on a colored background, copy the same color codes as the floor, and make it a bit darker and put them in place of #00000

    here is an example
